Jurors Arthur Scholz and Jane Lund

"Co-judging a show of this caliber was a challenging responsibility. The professionalism and creativity of the art displayed was magnificent. A fine painting should convey a special message through excellent composition and harmony of color and design. Each is rendered in the artist's mastering of their own technique. The selections chosen reflect these exceptional qualities. It was my pleasure and honor to have been invited to review this exhibition and arrive at the final decisions."
